Department of Journalism
This project aimed to enhance students' ability to deliver their online journalistic work by providing real hands-on experience of running a regular student-run news station with content delivered over the Internet. The project was divided into three stages. In the first stage, a series of web production and design workshops were conducted. There followed a series of lectures delivered by invited practitioners and experts in the field about the implications of IT developments and the future of online media. In the second stage, the existing student publications - The Young Reporter in English and the San Po Yan in Chinese - developed webbased counterparts regularly published on the Internet. The third stage involved collecting feedback and the dissemination of good practices. A workshop and a symposium on webbased teaching and learning were held with students and teachers from the Nanjing University. Through the training workshops and supportive activities, the project has achieved the purpose of equipping our students with cutting edge knowledge and practical skills.
